Our admissions for Reception class upwards are handled by The Hackney Learning Trust. Nursery applications are made directly to the school.
You are very welcome to visit before enrolling your child. We organise Open Days during the school year which can be found on the school calendar and booked via the school office.
Many of our children join Sir Thomas Abney in the Nursery, aged three.
In the Nursery there are full-time and part-time places. A place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school but children who meet the The Hackney Learning Trust’s entry requirements will move on to reception where they will be joined by children new to the school.
Sir Thomas Abney Primary School is governed by The Hackney Learning Trust’s admission procedures. Full details and procedures for online applications for Reception can be found on The Hackney Learning Trust website.
Nursery application procedures are also available onThe Hackney Learning Trust website. Application forms should be returned directly to the school office.
Moving to Secondary School

The Hackney Learning Trust website has detailed information and guidance for parents. It is very important that parents visit the schools they are interested in and check the admission criteria for each of these schools in order to make sensible, well informed choices.
